 “Stories come form a part of you that only gets visited rarely – sometimes never at all.  I think most people spend so much time trying to convince themselves that their lives are stories that the actual story-creating part of their brains (or hearts?) hardens and dies. People forget that there are other ways of ordering the world.” p169 Generation A by Douglas Coupland

“Terrorize, threaten and insult your own useless generation.  Suddenly you’ve become a novel idea and you’ve got people wanting to join in.  You’ve gained credibility form nothing.  You’re the talk of the town.  Develop this as a story you can sell.” -Malcolm McLaren
